With easy-to-understand explanations of the basic concepts, Seismic Design of Foundations examines recent and worldwide research outputs and post-earthquake reconnaissance case studies, and offers practical means of applying them to the real world. Each case study also provides worked examples of new and innovative findings that reveal background i
Award-winning title on the benefits, challenges and possibilities of urban underground spaces. The book gives a broad overview of the concept of underground space development investigating the issues that are associated with the sustainable development of urban underground space.
With urban tunnel construction growing worldwide, the ability to accurately predict the ground and structural response to tunnelling and the associated risks is now more important than ever before. Engineers are expected to consider all aspects of tunnel engineering in order to safeguard existing infrastructure, by employing field monitoring, physi
The many large earthquakes of the last decade, including the series in Christchurch in 2010-2011 and the Tohoku earthquake in Japan, have focused even greater attention on the cyclic behaviour of soils during these events. Great advances have recently been made on all aspects of soil dynamics, from the prediction of liquefaction based on site inves

Methods for improving ground and soil have undergone significant developments in recent years, particularly in terms of application and usage, and many innovative techniques have been introduced. However, it is of significance that in many areas the design process still lacks a theoretical framework.
The papers included in this volume, written b
This book assembles the practical rules and details for the efficient and economical execution of deep excavations. It draws together a wealth of experience of both design and construction from published work and the lifetime practice of the author.
This second edition is extensively revised to include changes in design emphasis including those du
